     43It seems that people who run obfsbridges have a tendency of shutting them down after a few weeks. This means that sometimes support people are giving out dead bridges to people.
     44An easy way to test if an obfs2/obfs3 bridge works is to connect directly to its IP:PORT (using telnet or netcat or whatever) and see if you get a random blob of data back.

     46Here is an example of a functional bridge:

     48If you don't get that random blob, the bridge is probably dead and you should replace it with another one.
